Play as the Way with GRC Dogsports founder Jay Jack

October 15th and 16th 2020  ***SOLD OUT***

Join us for two full days with GRC Dogsports founder Jay Jack.

What is GRC? GRC stands for Gameness, Relationship, Control. The mission of GRC Dogsports is to provide PEOPLE with the motivation to give their dogs the training they need to thrive in this world and a healthy place to use all of their natural drives.

October 15, 2020 – Play as the Way/Social Responsibility

Jay will discuss the concept of using play based training to teach the skills needed for social responsibility. Participants will learn the several novel ways to use food including the Treat Chase Game, and how to use structured Personal Play. The Rub Down to put relaxation on cue will also be covered. This Seminar should give you all the skills you need to prepare to pass GRC Dogsports Social Responsibility Test if you choose to pursue that goal.

Jay’s techniques are designed to keep both owners and dogs engaged in training. What owner doesn’t want to play with their dog? It is a whole new way of connecting with your dog and building a stronger relationship. Jay’s training is a great compliment to the training provided at K9Lifeline.

October 16, 2020 – GRC Dogsports Foundations

Jay Jack will introduce you to the world of GRC Dogsports Drive Sports. There will be work on the basics of Toy Play and Harness Acclimation. We’ll also introduce the Spring Pole, Wall Climb, Weight Pull and Mill Races. You’ll learn how to use indirect rewards, and learn the difference between Supportive Games and the Competitive Games most people use in training. These ideas will take your work to the next level even if you don’t want to pursue any actual sport titles.

This training is fun, fulfilling for your dog and emotionally uplifting for both dog and owner.
